<<Yes, the father of the groom just has to smile and say hello at the
rehearsal- you have no real job, drink up and keep to yourself how much this
is costing the father of the bride :)>>

As the father of the bride, I hope you parents of young men can appreciate 
my pain. I have four 
grandchildren, all girls. I'm afraid the forthcoming nuptials will bankrupt 
my family. Perhaps I can takl up the 
romance of eloping while they are still young.

Anyway my youngest  daughter had a lovely wedding on a luxury yacht cruising 
New York harbor in the best 
September weather I have ever seen. While I brought a full armory of 
photographic gear, my best pictures 
were taken with a Leica Digilux Zoom. The official wedding photographer did 
all the heavy photographic lifting 
with the formal shots while I was free to flit around amongst the guests 
snapping all those slices of life that 
are cherished long after the formality of the ceremony is forgotten. Some of 
the best shots were in the 
bridemaid's ready room as they fixed each other's dresses and hairdos. All 
were good friends of my daughter 
so they were used to having me around. The tiny camera didn't intimidate 
anyone. A good time was had by 

It was one of the few times I thoroughly enjoyed a wedding. Even after 
footing the bill, I thought it was 
worth it.
